Are you into women’s health and fitness? Have you noticed how freaking hard it is to love yourself in a world that’s designed to make you feel like you’re not enough (read: thin enough, beautiful enough, together enough)?
You’re in the right place.
If you’re into working out because it feels good, not in the hopes it will make you look good, I get you.
If you’re tired of letting fear stand between you and your purpose—I can help. I’ve been there. (If I’m being honest, I’m still there sometimes.)
And if you’re a business owner— I also create content that helps businesses achieve their purpose. If you need content marketing, blog posts, or newsletters that are aligned with your brand, I’d love to chat about how I can help. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need a book recommendation, I’m here for that, too.
I blog about running, triathlon, biking, reading, body image, reading, and writing here but you can also find my words on The Washington Post, The Guardian, Time, Runner’s World, Outside, Huffington Post, Longreads, Triathlete, and Huffington Post, among others.
This website grew out of a blog I started in 2007. At the time I was working as an occupational therapist, I’d just done my first full-distance Ironman, and I thought it would be cool to share my triathlon stories online. Also, I had no idea what I was doing. (I think they call that “finding your voice”.)
I secretly hoped a publishing agent would stumble upon my (then mediocre) blog and turn me into a famous author. (Cringe.) That never happened, but this guy I met in a bar found it and when he called to ask me out he said he thought it was hilarious. I ended up marrying that guy and in 2015 he secretly self-published a book comprised of a selection of my blog posts and gave it to me for my birthday, so a version of my wish did come true.
At that point, I had two very young kids and was burnt out on healthcare so I made the decision not to return to occupational therapy and to focus on writing instead. I’ve never looked back.
